If they had a version that leaves a chunk of shank embedded I could see the benefit.

I've dreamed of inventing some kind of semi-auto magfed pull riveter. Combining a lot of my interests into one package.

Most rivets only leave a small ball broken off the mandrel so not structural ?

I would like to know what process the Van’s quick build kits were put together with. I bought some quick build wings from an RV-8 project that had been given up on. And, several of the rivets had very long tails. But, if you trimmed them down to about the right size, it was an adequately expanded shop head.

it looks like it must some kind of automated process. But, with solid rivets.
